I’d be lying if I said the early line movement towards Charleston didn’t startle me a bit, but I’m not budging here. Delaware’s just the better team and I’m not sure the Cougars have been able to move past losing Grant Riller in the offseason as he was the guy that made this Charleston team go for the last four years. I think Delaware comes out on top in this one against a Charleston team that’s just 1-6 ATS this year, so give me Delaware in this pick ‘em.
